The Windsors / Royal Interiors, Part II
« on: December 08, 2009, 01:30:40 PM »
Yesterday I attended an interesting tour of Marlborough House, does anyone have any photos of the interior during the Royal Occupations? There was still a few lovely items of furniture no doubt left from Queen Marys time, one particular beautiful table that has been insured for £2 million! There was also two beautiful marble busts of Edward & Alexandra and also two plaster busts of George and Mary. There was also a lovely oak overmantel with the date 28 April 1863 on the top, the date Edward & Alexandra moved in and on the bottom the date 4April 1903 for when George & Mary moved in - a very nice touch! We saw the state dining room, with original ceiling put in by Edward VII, where Edward VIII  dined in 1936 prior to announcing to Queen Mary, in her apartments upstairs, his intention to marry Mrs Simpson!!! Through the window I could see Queen Marys thatched revolving summer house (to keep out the sun), still there! And saw both staircases which she must have swept down in all her glory!!!

As Lisa suggested am starting a new thread. It's EXTREMELY entertaining. Please continue.  ;D. I would be interested to see Mr Kendrick dig himself out of the hole he has created.  ;)

P.S anyone doubting Alexies diagnosis of heamophilia should really read "Nicholas and Alexandra" by Robert Massie. An excellent book. There's a whole chapter on it if my memory serves me correctly.

Hey, I would love to learn more about this rather fascinating woman.

I think she suffered some "poetic justice" perhaps (?) but would love to know more and what people think of her? Her story is definitely an interesting one  :)
